Thule Arb43b Aeroblade Roof Rack Bar (ARB47BLK) 3583

Review for thule arb43b aeroblade roof rack

Price was $199.95 - $242.98. I replaced my rapid aero load bars with these aeroblade load bars based on the claim that they are the quietest load bars on the market. Well they totally lived up to the claim. I do miss the look with the fairing kit that was on my rapid aero load bars, as mentioned the fairing kit will not fit this new load bar. When you hear how much quieter it is, you wont care that the little thule billboard is gone. I have this system on a volkswagen passat with a sun roof and the rapid aero bar/fairing combination really howled above 45mph. Also in the summer with the sun roof open. Bugs would be sucked into the cabin by the low pressure area behind the fairing. You can imagine how cranky a wasp is when he is flying along minding his own business and then suddenly drops in your lap. Not a good thing at 65 mph! i bought the aeroblades solely on the wind noise claims and if you like your ride quieter, you wont be disappointed. Like i said this is a direct product comparison with the rapid areo bars which i had on my passat for about a year and the aeroblade bars that i put on a month ago. Be sure to check the notes on product fitment as a few of the carriers wont fit this wider load bar, mine did so i went for it. Great product improvement!

dramatically reduced noise superior strength total safety and an attractive aerodynamic look. aeroblades come 43" 47" 53" and 60" bar lengths. they are compatible with a variety of thule rack feet including thule rapid traverse rapid podium rapid crossroad rapid tracker rapid aero (sold separately). feet slide easily onto the bars via underbar slots while a wide variety of accessories* slide onto the bars via slots along the top of the bar. the wing design of the bars and winddiffuser strips at the top and covers for underbar slots keep wind noise to a minimum while boxbeam aluminum extrusion construction provides strength and a light weight. additional features include: tape measure-free installation and pivoting swingblade end caps. the silent strong and safe load bar choice

part of the aeroblade being one of the most quiet roof rack load bars on the market. provided in strips that can be cut to fit around rack accessories the textured winddiffuser surface sits on the

strong boxbeam construction the sophisticated boxbeam aluminum extrusion construction of aeroblades creates one of the strongest load bars in the market. extrusion construction creates a fixed cross-section made up of separate compartments running the length of the forged aluminum bars. compartments have separate load-bearing vertical sections that add support to load bars. this creates incredible strength within the bars that is not compromised by the light aluminum construction. using a vertical load test the aeroblade can sustain over 800 lbs. of force. tape measure-free installation with smartslide the aeroblade contains a measuring system/component known as a smartslide that allows for quick no-hassle tape measure-free installation on rack feet. the smartslide is a stiff molded t-shaped strip with measurement increments etched into its upper surface. with it users can quickly make the simple measurements that may be needed when trimming the winddiffuser and the additional t-strips used to cover the outer edge of the underbar slot once rack feet have been slid on. covering these slots improves aerodynamics and noise diffusion as air flows over the aeroblade. in addition because the smartslide is designed to slide along the inner edge of the underbar slot to the mounting point of rack feet the four smartslides included also cover these section's open slot. this minimizes the need to trim t-strips in the primary rack application allows aeroblades to more easily be used on multiple vehicles and insures that a measuring device is always available. easy access to t-slots with swingblade end caps unlike the traditional end caps of some load bar systems that must be pulled off in order to gain access to accessory mounting t-slots aeroblade swingblade end caps (four included) pivot open and closed without being removed. this pivoting action allows full access to the t-slot for easy and fast accessory installs. it also ensures that misplacement of

The F.A.Q. for Thule Arb43b Aeroblade Roof Rack Bar (ARB47BLK)

We bought these crossbars because one of our dogs, a belgium malinois, reacted painfully from the whistle generated from our original crossbars. These aeroblades produce hardly any wind noise and from our malinois reaction that noise level is acceptable. Because they are lightweight and aerodynamic, we noticed a slight improvement in fuel mileage over our other crossbars. With our box on top, we could load it up to the weight of the old crossbars again without seeing a hit to our travel milage. They work with all thule products. They are also very easy to install or remove if need be. We couldn't be happier.

A number of questions have been asked here.

Q&A

(0) Question: does this come with the feet?


(1) Question: are you buying a pair or just one


(2) Question: do these racks whistle or make excessive noise while driving?


(3) Question: what is the width of these bars? i'm trying to figure out if they will fit into my old thule j-style kayak carriers for my new vehicle.


(4) Question: i have a 2011 kia soul. what size should i get?

Don't Do It! Its Not Clear If You Go To The Thule Website To Determine The Size And Equipment That You Need To Install A Roof Box On Your Vehicle That You Need Both Podium Feet And A Connection Kit To Connect These Bars To Your Car; It Is An Extra $260 For Those. Plus The Bars And The Feet Are About A 2 Hour Install. We Did All Of This And Then Found Roof Rack Bars From The Dealer That Were $225 Out The Door A Perfect Fit And Installed In Less Than 10 Minutes. Look For Dealer Roof Rack Bars That Fit Your Car Exactly And Go That Route Instead Of The Thule Mounting Kit. They Fit Better Are Quicker To Install And Don't Hang Over The Side Of Your Vehicle.

C. Evelyn, Cumbria says

Compared the the rest of thule plastic components, this is probably the best thing they make. The finish is perfect though i wish they offered them in black (hint, there is a company that sells thule aeroblades powder-coated black). The ruler feature is worthless. They are plenty stable once bolted down though. . Youll notice lots of wind noise above 60mph if you have a sunroof. With my sunroof and sunshade closed its almost unnoticeable. . The slot in the top might be nice, but the design has a rubber piece that goes in this slot. So to use the slot to strap down loads you would have to remove this, then reinstall afterwards. . Nice feature about this that i didnt see mentioned elsewhere: the bars have a slight arch to them to contour to your roof better. I dont think the square bar thule sells has this feature.

S. Cageen, Nebraska

The Bars Work Great. They Are Strong Quiet And Have Rubber For Added Grip And Protection. I Do Wonder Why The Ends Can Go Up And Down But That Is Just My Curiosity That Perhaps There Is A Purpose I Am Missing.

X. Susan, City of London says

I really like this product. It performs well, and there is a noticeable improvement in the wind noise. They hold solid and have not slipped once. However, i'm not a big fan of thule's assembly instructions, which are in pictograms only and had a tendency to be really confusing. And, there were no words anywhere to verify that you understood correctly. Since this was a little more complex than just mounting a box to them (for which the pictograms work well), i looked up assembly and installation instructions on youtube to ensure i was doing it right (a few of the steps i would have never guessed right). The instructions are the only reason this product didn't get 5 stars from me, but the problem can be remedied by youtube. Otherwise, a great product!

E. Taylor, Cambridgeshire

My Review For This Item Is Posted Under The Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack - 480r. I Was Very Happy With The Way The Components Once Assembled Fit On My Vehicle. The Aeroblade Cross Bars Are Well Made But At $200 For The Pair Seem A Little Spendy Considering That They Are Just Aluminum Extrusions. There Is No Wind Noise At 65 Mph. I Do Notice Some Noise When There Is A Crosswind Or Headwind. This Is An Improvement Over The 3 Sets Of Older Non-aero Yakima Racks That I Have Owned Over The Past 25 Years. The Product Is Mounted On My 2016 Honda Accord.

D. Newell, Aquitaine says

I Received The Blades Damaged In Different Locations As Well As Missing The Black Strip/stripe That Is Part Of The Blade. There Are Dents And Aggressive Scratches On The Actual Blade. The Packaging Shows Signs Of Use/prior Owner. Functionality: I Use It With A Goodboy Kayak Accessory For An Oc1 And It Works Great. There Is A Whistling Sound Once You Hit 30 Miles Per Hour. It's Audible For Sure And Gets Louder As You Drive Faster.

Excellent product! well made! these have very little wind noise and drag and they actually look good sitting on top the vehicle when not in use. Use them all the time though and they are holding up well. Easy to use. Easy to assemble. Took me 10 minutes to mount these on my 2012 honda civic sedan by myself (first time user).

After you have purchased everything you need separately (locks, feet, bars) and manage to get through the frustrations of lining everything up just right to install; these are nice crossbars that feel very sturdy and grippy. My only complaint is for rubber strips that run down the bars, they have to be removed to use the t-slots and then put back in when you are not using them. That means ripping out the rubber and then pressing it back in each time you change what your using, i understand one obviously has to do certain things if they want to use it for different applications, but seems like there could be a better solution.

I Previously Purchased The Rave Powersports Aero Cross Bars For My Ford Escape And For The Price They Were Good Value. However They Made A Huge Racket. After 4 Years I Took Them Off To See If I Could Plug Up The Bottom Slot To See If That Would Quite Them Somewhat. What I Found Was The Mounting Clamps Were Very Rusty And I Began To Wonder If I Would Soon Be Losing My Kayaks As I Was Driving Down The Road. God Forbid They Should Hit Someone Driving Behind Me. So I Purchased These Thules For About 4x The Price. I Have Not Used Them For My Boats Yet But They Are So Much More Pleasant In Terms Of Wind Noise. In Fact They Sound No Different Than Having Nothing Up There. They Look A Lot Better Too. Btw: These 60" Bars Were Not Recommended For My 2014 Ford Escape But They Fit Nicely.

I pieced together a brand new thule rack system between here (online store) and ebay. These bars were not available on ebay at the time i was looking and everyone else (many bike shops) was looking for much more money than online store. I bought these bars instead of the square ones and am extremely happy i did. I spent a bit more for the whole setup (aero vs square) but it has proved itself very much. I have been in a friends car with the square bars and it was louder and less wind resistant than the aero bars. My advice, spend the little extra and get the areo setup. You'll be very happy you did!

Quiet! No Really These Things Are Seriously Quiet While Driving. They Aren't Inaudible But Probably The Closest You're Gonna Get Without Flat Out Removing Them. I Can't Imagine Any Other Cross Bars Being This Quiet. And They Give You Rubber Stripping To Cover Any Holes (well Troughs Actually) That Might Otherwise Upset The Laminar Flow And Cause Unnecessary Noise. Very Nicely Done. I Put These On A 2012 Vw Tiguan (using The Thule Rapid Crossroad Foot Pack) And Probably Should Have Gone With The 53" Version For 2 Kayaks. I Only Anticipated 1 Kayak At Time Of Purchase But The Collection Grew. Ended Up Getting A Takima J-low To Mount One On Its Side And One Flat On The Bars. Very Tight Squeeze (the J-lows Max Weight For 2 Kayaks Isn't High Enough If They Are Fishing Kayaks - 110lbs). The J-lows Are Very Noisy And Whistle When Empty (gotta Break Out Some Duct Tape And Work On That. ) But The Bars - You Won't Notice They Are There Unless Actively Listening For Them When Unloaded.
